From a gravity-defying treadmill to a robotic exoskeleton, Mary Free Bed has invested in some of the most advanced rehabilitative technology available to help put patients on the path to recovery.
Developed using NASA technology, the AlterG uses specialized air pressure for a near-weightless experience to help patients recover mobility sooner and safely.
An “anti-gravity” chamber enables the therapist to adjust the amount of body weight on your lower extremities, from 100 percent to as low as 20 percent. This reduces impact and pain while supporting movement and balance.
This computer-assisted device improves upper–body movement and functionality, including range-of-motion and hand-eye coordination.
The therapy car enables you to practice the skill of getting in and out of a vehicle, as well as manage aspects of accessing a vehicle, such as the trunk or back seat. The vehicle features a hydraulic lift system that allows us to lift it up to mimic heights of taller vehicles.
Hundreds of feet of the Tollos and ZeroG technologies are located throughout our inpatient and outpatient treatment areas.
The gait and balance training systems provide static or dynamic bodyweight support to safely work on barrier-free walking and balance tasks.
With this interactive light-up display, therapists can assess and help improve hand-eye coordination, concentration, endurance, eye movement, reaction time and peripheral vision.
This dynamic tool can be particularly beneficial if you’re recovering from a stroke or traumatic brain injury and experiencing cognitive deficits related to vision.
This robotic walking device automatically moves your legs and provides support as you stand and walk, helping to improve mobility. It’s used most often for patients with a spinal cord injury.
The Lokomat is an intensive, robot-assisted walking technology that focuses on muscle strength and neurological memory. It helps you remember the pattern of walking while being supported by a harness, using a special treadmill with robotic “legs.”
Functional Electrical Stimulation (FES) safely uses pulses of electrical current to stimulate peripheral nerves, causing muscle contractions. This specialized therapy tool enables therapists to target specific sets of muscles. This can be effective for improving strength for people with a spinal cord injury or certain neurological conditions.
This virtual reality system designed for rehabilitation is an engaging therapeutic activity. It uses multiple intensity levels to focus on range of motion, core and balance, cognition and function.
Aqua therapy uses warm temperatures and water’s natural buoyancy to help you move more easily. It also increases circulation and helps muscles relax so you can experience greater range of motion. It’s a safe environment to work on increasing muscle strength and flexibility. It will also help you perform you might not be able to do on land, such as standing or walking.
Mary Free Bed has two therapy pools, including one of the area’s only therapeutic temperature (94 degrees Fahrenheit) pools. A smaller pool at a more traditional temperature (84 degrees Fahrenheit) is a comfortable option if you prefer cooler temperatures.
Three spacious patient changing rooms ensure privacy for you and a caregiver. A ceiling-mounted lift system enhances safety.
This system enhances visual function, muscular coordination and neuromotor abilities.
